I have all the blogs that I look at in my Reader. I used to click on each one, wait for it to load, then read the portion of their blog that I have not read. It takes a few seconds to load because it is loading their whole blog, even though all you need is the newest post. Well, I finally figured out if you select "All Items" it will load all the new posts from each of your subscriptions. It loads faster since it is only having to pull the new posts from each one. I then can roll down and read blog posts. If I have one that has content that I want to look at later such as the store coupon deals or a recipe that looks good I select the "share" box at the bottom of the post. I then later go to the Share folder and make my grocery list or copy the recipe to file. I then select "unshare" to erase it from the Share folder.
All this speeds up the time that I am able to read blogs in my Reader by a lot of time. And, a little hint. I really hate when bloggers have selected not to show their whole post in Reader, but are only showing the title or first paragraph. If they do not pull me in with the title I rarely click through to the full post. I just do not have time to do that. I need it all to be easily accessible. I wonder how many people are like me and do not click through.
